I‘m a liberal leaning outdoorsman attempting to open the minds of right wingers to the idea that libs fish too. Anglers come from all walks of life, left, right, and center. Not everyone who fishes for bass is a redneck fond of Nascar, country music, and religiosity. Expect posts about largemouth bass fishing, techniques, reviews of lures and other products, but not any condemnable conservative rants. I hope to inspire the online angler community to dial down rhetoric which will do more harm than good to our sport.

Getting Around:

If you are looking for something in particular, use the Labels below, the Blog Archive, or the search box at the top to find what you need. When using the search box, simple search terms will get the best results. One word is often better than three. Searching for "Pflueger" will give you more results than "Pflueger baitcasting reel." Use these three features to your advantage.

Labels are relevant tags or keywords. Click on a label to view other related posts organized by date. For example, clicking on the label spinnerbaits will take you to all the other posts with the tag spinnerbaits and the label largemouth bass denotes any fishing report where I caught a bass. Labels are listed below, first by frequency and then in alphabetical order. Labels are also tagged below each individual post. When viewing by Label, 20 results are listed per page. Click "Older Posts" to see more posts with that Label. In addition, some entries may also have a list of related posts at the bottom you might also find useful.

Anyone can comment, so go ahead and post. I'd like to hear what you think. There is a "Post a Comment" link below every single entry. Comments are still moderated for approval. Anything inappropriate will be rejected. This also helps cut down on spam.

• Caddo Report 3-5-2010

Got a late start this morning as I was waiting for the mailman to drop something off. Didn't make my first cast until 1:30pm. Tried somewhere new this time.

Figured heading up Alligator Bayou into Hayrake and taking Boat Row R across towards Clinton Lake was a good idea. Why? Didn't think the fish up that way would be as pressured. Took me a while to get up there after crossing the main lake, but I made it with plenty of gas to spare.

Started out working the BBB Trick Stick the same way I've been fishing it. Didn't have any takers. Also tried a shallow Bandit 100 series crankbait for a brief bit. Drifted into a stretch of sparse cypress trees as the wind picked up. Blew me back behind all the trees, so I switched off to the Red Eye Shad just to see if I could repeat what I did the last time out. Didn't throw it on the Curado E5, though. Too many weeds and too shallow for that speed. Went with the 7:1 Patriarch this time. Bad thing about fishing the Texas side is all of the Spanish moss. Hang up in that stuff and you'll bring some back, guaranteed.

Picked up the first bite several feet off the back side of a cypress tree. I think I hung the RES up in some grass and the next thing on the hook after ripping free was a bass. Weighed 1lb 9oz and only measured about 14 1/2 inches. Fat for its size.

Next fish came off the back side of a duck blind. It hit hard. I thought it was a lot bigger than what I eventually pulled into the boat, but I'm not going to complain. That one weighed 3lbs 6oz and measured close to 16 and 3/4 inches. Short, but another fat one.

Third fish was a little more lively. I went back across Row R and immediately put the RES behind a pair of thin cypress trees. The bass hit right away. That one went 2lbs 10oz and also measured around 16 and 3/4 inches.

So all three were slot fish, but they were fat and eager to bite. They seemed to prefer the side sheltered from the wind. Water temps were 52 degrees, so I was surprised to find them this active. All three were fighters too. Only saw a few boats up that way. Less pressure must count for something.

Nice website! I am going to Caddo with my dad and cousin to fish for bass and crappie on March 19. Fished Caddo for bream last April and had a great time. Any advice?

Aside from advising you to make sure to stay on the boat rows, I don't have much advice. Try hitting Jeems for both. Caught two nice 2lb crappie over there last year on crankbaits. Fishing pressure is pretty intense right now.
